Default Cheap CC Pistols

Taurus Millennium G2 and Smith and Wesson M&P Shield. The Millennium G2 feels great with good width and great stippling. Found the Flat Dark Earth for $230. Shield is a single stack but the texture isn't the greatest and my hands my be just a bit too big for it, but it is $205 right now which is amazing. You guys shoot either or prefer one over the other. Really tempted to just by both of them. 9mm Taurus for the lifetime warranty and .40 Shield for summer time.

You can't beat the M&P shield in 9 or 40. I've never been a fan of Taurus and for about the same $$ I'd chose smith any day. Just my .02

I think the Taurus is a cheap gun that is priced appropriately. The Shield is a $375 gun that can be had at a great deal right now due to rebates.
Get the Shield in 9 or .45.

Yeah I have read damn near nothing but good things from this model and I shoot +p ammo so it's not if but when either pistol is gonna break. Lifetime warranty sure sounds nice.

I own one 9mm Shield and I now own TWO .45 Shields. I would say that I like them. If you have not tried the new .45 Shield with the new textured grip, I strongly urge you too. I got my last Shield .45 from Palmetto State Armory for $299 and then with the $75 rebate, it's a stupid price! So that's why I now have two of them! Haha.

Yeah the grip on that pistol in the picture looks MUCH different. I tried both models this week but am undecided. That's were my comments came from in the first post. I didn't know there were two different grip textures. Is that for .45 only? (Nice bubble)

Yes the new texture is only on the .45 Shield right now. It's an aggressive texture for sure! But it helps make the recoil and muzzle flip only a hair more than the 9mm!

They have the more aggressive texture on their full size M&P 2.0 lineup. But the .45 Shield is the only one of the Shield models with it right now. I have a bike tire inner tube on the 9mm to give it a little more grippyness for my wife!

Man...I'm a good pistol shooter but I was just thinking about shooting a Shield in .45 and that thing would be tough to smother.
